Jhoulys Chacin's timetable coming into focus
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin will make his next rehab start Saturday in Class A Modesto, and he has been cleared to increase his workload as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury. Chacin will throw at least 50 pitches in his next start, but could throw as much as 65 depending on how the outing goes, according to MLB.com.

As Chacin continues his progression, a timeline for his potential return is also clearing up. He will make at least one rehab start following Saturday's, April 24, likely in Colorado Springs. If all goes well there, he might be cleared to return to the majors April 29 against the Diamondbacks, but likely won't need more than one additional rehab start regardless.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham started his sixth consecutive rehab game at Double-A Birmingham, MLB.com reports. Beckham is no longer feeling any soreness in his oblique and could be nearing the end of his rehab.

"He's been doing good," manager Robin Ventura said of Beckham. "He's getting closer. You want to make sure you get a good five, six in a row where you don't feel anything, so you know, even when they do it, there are no signs. It just happens. Knowing that he's had it before, you want to just nip it."
